I’m so glad this is being printed in a major magazine as Sports Illustrated. I plan on buying the magazine as a keepsake. I’m not concerned that she’s not being featured by SI because they could have rejected the ad. They could have told the company that she is not “attractive” and that she “does not fit their standards” or something similar that a lot of magazines already say when presented with similar material. The presence of “no” and “you are not good enough” is strong in this industry already – but this time they said yes. 😀
Ashley Graham looks fantastic and is wearing a bikini. We need more models like her on magazine covers, advertisements, TV, film, and so on. Beauty comes in many more forms than what is shoved down our throats. I hope this is the first of many changes!
